Education and training

Educating ourselves, the community and fellow healthcare professionals.

The Rowans Hospice is an independent healthcare provider. We work collaboratively with local NHS Trusts to provide a diverse programme of evidence and practice-based education and training.

We have an extensive in-house training programme for staff and volunteers and a range of courses for external practitioners of all disciplines and grades. This includes our monthly Lunchtime Education Forum.

Training is provided by a variety of speakers, both from within the hospice and outside. Sessions are designed to incorporate a range of learning opportunities through taught theory, reflection, group work, participation and discussion.

If you are interested in any of our events, we encourage you to come and learn in a supportive environment from qualified and highly skilled practitioners. We are all committed to the ideal that provision of good education is central to good palliative care.

We provide training placements for medical, nursing and other professionals allied to healthcare. Further details can be found on our professional development page.
